28 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Directed by James Fox, "I know What I Saw" is a feature length documentary on UFOs. The film is regarded as one of the best in its genre by many in the "paranormal community".

Built around a National Press Club assembly in Washington DC, the film finds Fox attempting to overwhelm his audience with what he considers to be "facts". In this regard, he gathers a variety of high ranking UFO witnesses, most of whom are astronauts, scientists, military and commercial pilots, government officials, politicians, presidents, mayors, police officers, soldiers and military base commanders. A giant "appeal to authority", Fox's film attempts to overturn the notion that UFOs are sighted only by bumpkins and hicks.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about the UFO "phenomenon" is the way it facilitates a kind of ontological horror. For fans of both horror and science fiction, UFO mythology, like the writings of H. P. Lovecraft almost a century ago, has the ability to induce a very specific terror: one which overturns and challenges nothing less than man's entire conception of "reality". The philosophical flip-side, of course, is equally horrific; mankind as utterly alone, doomed and bound to the rules of entropy and decay.

9/10 – Works well as a horror film, regardless of the veracity of its testimonies.
